Whiplash is a common condition, especially among car accident victims. As your Richmond Heights chiropractor, we frequently treat car accident victims presenting signs of whiplash. Unfortunately, many of our patient's delay treatment after the accident occurs because they don't realize that they have whiplash. This condition can be subtle at first, and the symptoms of whiplash are difficult to recognize. Knowing the symptoms can help you decide when it's time to see a chiropractor.
Whiplash is a condition that occurs when tiny tears develop in the muscles and ligaments of the neck. Often, whiplash occurs during car accidents that involve impact from the rear. These collisions can cause patients to jerk their head forward or backward, thus causing the injury. The symptoms of whiplash include:
Anyone can get whiplash. However, women are at higher risk for whiplash because their necks are thinner and more flexible. People who have low headrests in their cars are also at risk.
Patients should see a Webster Groves, Creve Coeur & Richmond Heights chiropractor immediately after an accident occurs, even if they display no symptoms. Seeing a chiropractor in a timely fashion can help ensure a quick diagnosis and timely treatment. Patients who fail to see the chiropractor right away risk complications and a lifelong struggle with pain.
